Drug Safety

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drug and alcohol visibility is not highly present if not looking for it. Our private school policy is highly enforced. Peer pressure does not seem to be much of a problem

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: We are a dry campus, and you really never see any drugs. We aren't even allowed to smoke on campus so there are rarely even cigarettes used. Since it's in Seattle, marijuana is legal but this isn't a problem at all here. It's really nice to have no pressure to do anything if you want to stay away from it. If you do get caught, the rules are strictly enforced.

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol doesn't happen on campus. IF they want to drink and go to parties, there is a larger university near by or they go to someone's house. There is the use of tobacco and huka, but again they aren't allowed on campus so people smoke that and their cigarettes right off campus.

Drug Safety: Since we are a private school, spu takes drugs very serious and we are not allowed to have any on or off campus.

Drug Safety: Use of drugs=expulsion. They CALL your family and tell them about use of weed/alcohol + give you a $150+ fine. Pretty strict.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students would say there is no drug scene at Seattle Pacific. Many go their entire educational careers without ever running across drugs; this is because users are not flamboyant about their illegal habits, and most students are too square to recognize what's going on in the first place. The most common drug of choice is marijuana, naturally. Harder drugs are less common and rarely discussed openly.

Because SPU is a mostly conservative community (or at least by appearances it is), drug use is going to be carefully hidden and managed. Unless you're using them, drugs really won't be a problem or a danger on campus. That being said, if you are a drug user, it may take a while to find others like yourself, but chances are you'll have a keener eye to spot them.
